ALL RED LAKE SCHOOLS WILL BE CLOSED ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 28, 2014

RED LAKE TRIBAL PROGRAMS WILL START AT NOON

All Red Lake Schools, District #38, will be closed on Tuesday, January 28, 2014, district officials announced Monday evening. This is the second day in a row this week that the school was closed because of the weather.

The Red Lake Tribe also announced tribal programs would not start until noon, also.

It is a safety issue and we don't want students outside for any length of time with the wind chills this low, officials had stated. And it wouldn't be productive for students if they were to start at noon.

The boys basketball game with Nevis at Red Lake will be postponed until another date.

Temperatures are expected to be above zero on Wednesday and school will run on time as scheduled.

Those two days that school was not in session this week, will be added to the school calendar at the end of the year at the next Red Lake School Board meeting in February.

The region is in a winter weather advisory until noon on Tuesday, and the National Weather Service in Grand Forks, N.D., forecast said the area could see wind chills as low as 55 below on Tuesday, with temperatures sitting at -25 to -35 below throughout Tuesday night and into the morning.

Red Lake Tribal Officials announced Sunday night that all Tribal Programs would not start until Noon on Monday.
